    racks and hacks - mounting the Moon Shield, aka Serfas TL-60

    the moon shield, aka the serfas TL-60 - can the clip be hacked like the cygolite hotshot?

    the serfas web-site shows that it can be mounted to a rear-rack by screwing the light directly to the rack. does the moon version have the same "feature"? is there a decent way to put that light on a rear-rack while maintaining quick-release functionality?

    The TL-60 has a silicone strap attached to a QR interface extremely similar to what I see on the PDW site: http://www.ridepdw.com/goods/spare-p...-light-bracket
    The TL-60 pivot incorporates a spring loaded mechanism for tool-less adjustment and you may have to give that up but can't see any reason that the mounting screw can't be undone and the TL-60 swapped over to the PDW options - in fact I'll probably do that or something similar myself. The silicone band is a poor fit on seat stays.

    A rear rack? The plastic embedded in the silicone is easy to extract and you could sand it flat and either bolt it directly in place or use a reflector bracket to attach it to the rear rack. Its large enough (just barely) that you can drill two hole in it the standard spacing to mount a reflector.

    This adapter may work. I've used it for other lights than the Planet Bike Superflash without issues.
